Description

Well current active setup at this moment. Used it for gaming and editing. Only problem is that the CPU really makes the GPU suffers, so that needs to upgrade. Need a better CPU. But apart from that everything is smooth!

Review of most of the parts in this build:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bT9-ORQyXg

Part Reviews

CPU

A very good CPU! Had mine from 2012 paired up with an AsRock board. it suffers issues from random shut downs and stuff due to the poor electricity here at where I live. But from then till now. It still survives and packing a punch! Best CPU I've ever own!

CPU Cooler

My first aftermarket CPU cooler and its a beast! Keeps my OC Phenom II cool! Plus the fans aren't even maxed haha! Fan speed is around 30/40%.

Motherboard

Decent motherboard. works like a charm. Took a star off due to the fact that when i got it set up, it wouldn't POST. Getting like 5 beeps. A friend told me to take out the CMOS battery and change which I did and guess what? It booted like a charm! So that's the only issue. CMOS battery it came with was faulty.

Memory

Had these rams from 2012 in an old system that suffers from random shutdowns due to poor electricity where I'm at. From then till now, these rams last, they survived. Currently working in my current build with no issues. So these rams are indeed awesome!

Storage

Bought this HDD in Jamaica from 2012 and was also in the same system i had back then that suffers random shutdowns due to bad electricity and a damaged AsRock board. Still currently using it and the only issue currently is that its slowly slowing down. So I believe it might die soon but they lasted from 2012 to current so this is a damn good HDD! Love it!

Video Card

My first GPU and I LOVE IT!!!! Works like a beast. Destroys anything I throw at it like a BOSS! CPU is holding it back though but apart from that, its a beast!

Case

All I can say is that its HUGE for a mid-tower! This case got all kinds of space I swear! Love it. Sturdy and heavy. Weighs around 18lb. If there was rubber grommets on the cut outs that would make it even better! But yea no grommets =/. But its a nice bang for the buck! Gotta say I love it :).

Power Supply

had these from 2012 but started using it late 2015. I don't really have much experience with it then but now? in this system? Its able to run both my GPU and CPU plus handle my OC on the CPU well so all i can say is. It was a great choice! No issues whatsoever!

Optical Drive

Started using this recently even though i had it from 2012. No issues and it works like a charm!

Nice! Yes! The AM3 CPUs are cheap now and still very powerful. Back then when I bought this one. It was from new egg at around $124. Just checked the invoice. This one was bought in 2012.
